    "Mersey Beat" #40. A very nice copy of the January 31-February 14, 1963 issue featuring a back-page piece about the Beatles hitting the top of the charts (again) with the single "Please Please Me," setting up the Beatlemania that soon followed; as well as a photo and caption about a struggling young actor named Ian McShane receiving his first film role in "the Wild and the Willing." (These days McShane is wiining awards for his performance on the HBO series "Deadwood.") This copy is in Very Fine condition with mild wear and tanning. A great sample of a very rare item.
